Healthy Pumpkin Seed Breakfast Bread

Hi friends!

I can’t believe we are in November! If you haven’t noticed, I held off as long as I could with the pumpkin recipes – denial much.  I mentally wasn’t ready to let summer go but with it being a bit over a month until Christmas, it’s about time I faced the music.  The pumpkin and spices in this recipe give your home such an amazing smell when this is baking that you won’t be able to resist.  I always forget how easy loaves are to make.  They take awhile to cook but are SO easy to mix up and turn out perfect each time.

In this recipe, I used mainly almond flour and oats.  I love the texture almond flour gives in baking – so fluffy and not dense like some gluten-free flours I’ve tried.  Pumpkins seeds are so nutrient dense, with a 1 ounce serving boasting 7g of protein, 233 mg of potassium and 26% of your daily iron so I used those as an add-in and topping but feel free to substitute with walnuts, almonds or whatever you prefer.

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try! As always, I LOVE seeing your recipe creations.  Please tag me on all socials as @balancingandie so I can follow along 🙂 . To never miss a post again, you can subscribe to my blog on your right hand panel.
